Gallaudet men’s basketball

Gallaudet’s Sam Atkinson reappointed chair of NCAA Division III men’s
basketball committee

INDIANAPOLIS – Gallaudet University Associate Athletic Director for
Communications Sam Atkinson has been reappointed chair of the NCAA
Division III men’s basketball committee for the 2019-20 season.

Atkinson was re-elected by his peers on the committee at the NCAA
headquarters in June during the annual committee meeting.

He will guide and lead the committee, who helps to administer and conduct
all aspects of the Division III men’s basketball championship, into a
joint championship with Division I and II in Atlanta during the 2020 NCAA
Men’s Final Four.

note:
What this means is that if Gallaudet enters the NCAA-III nationals in
basketball, Sam has to recuse himself to avoid conflict of interest!

random deafsports thoughts

Terence Parkin, the two-time hearing Olympics
swimmer from South Africa, was asssaulted
in a road rage incident. It is sad it had
to come to that – just that many hearing
drivers are angry drivers, no matter where,
in USA or elsewhere.
